I am a history buff, especially World War 1 and 2 and the Roman Empire. I love watching football, films and playing video games. I have loved being at Southport college, making new friends, learning new skills and being in a new environment.

Art & Identity - Racism in Football

About My Project

My final piece is a poster based on the theme of promoting anti-racism in football as this is a subject I am passionate about. I love football and feel strongly about the idea of stamping out racism in the game and among supporters. This has been a historic problem and still is an issue in current news headlines.

I have created a large poster with a series of my own line drawings of famous footballers and some text. The final piece was then edited in Adobe Photoshop to give a context for where the poster could be displayed.
